"There are questions Kyungsoo doesnt ask Jongin. He doesnt ask Jongin if they can stay together forever, or how many tomorrows are really left, because sometimes the truth is too bright. He can only hold onto the seconds, each gesture, each contact, each syllable. Jongin comes in seconds. Everything comes in seconds.If only the seconds could last long enough."

Fyodor Tyutchev Quotes

"Silentium![1]Молчи, скрывайся и таиИ чувства и мечты свои —Пускай в душевной глубинеВстают и заходя́т онеБезмолвно, как звезды́ в ночи, —Любуйся ими — и молчи.Как сердцу высказать себя?Другому как понять тебя?Поймёт ли он, чем ты живёшь?Мысль изрече́нная есть ложь.Взрывая, возмутишь ключи, —Питайся ими — и молчи.Лишь жить в себе самом умей —Есть целый мир в душе твоейТаинственно-волшебных дум;Их оглуши́т наружный шум,Дневные разгоня́т лучи, —Внимай их пенью — и молчи!..1830"

Michael Mandelbaum Quotes

"In the past when a country became as powerful as the United States, other countries would band together to clip its wings. But that isnt happening now and I dont think its not going to happen, because other countries are not threatened by us, and they secretly appreciate the services that we provide, even if they dont usually say so."

Quotes About John F Kennedy

"[Richard Bedford Bennett] was the richest Prime Minister and the only millionaire to hold office before Pierre Trudeau. His money obviously colored his thinking -- colored it true blue -- but he did not consider it a political drawback. No leader, he said, could serve the public properly if he was constantly looking over his shoulder at the shadow of debts. This theory is now widely accepted in the United States where it has become practically impossible for a non-millionaire to run for high office without selling pieces of himself like a prize-fighter. Yet the public still suspects a self-made millionaire like Lyndon Johnson while revering the much-richer John F. Kennedy, who got it all from his father." - Author: Gordon Donaldson

"The Occidental snobbery which is invading us, the gunboats, rapid-fire guns, long-range rifles, explosives... what else?

Quotes About Arrogant

I think that in the essence of human civilization, we have the desire to become rich without limit, by taking the lives of other creatures." - Author: Hayao Miyazaki

Quotes About Credit

"Im really not quite as frippery a fellow as you seem to think! I own that in my grasstime I committed a great many follies and extravagances, but, believe me, Ive long since out-grown them! I dont think they were any worse than what nine out of ten youngsters commit, but unfortunately I achieved, through certain circumstances, a notoriety which most young men escape. I was born with a natural aptitude for the sporting pursuits you regard with so much distrust, and I inherited, at far too early an age, a fortune which not only enabled me to indulge my tastes in the most expensive manner imaginable, but which made me an object of such interest that everything I did was noted, and talked of. Thats heady stuff for greenhorns, you know! There was a time when I gave the gossips plenty to talk about. But do give me credit for having seen the error of my ways!" - Author: Georgette Heyer

Quotes About Teens

"Certainly working with teens keeps me up to date with language and with certain kinds of thinking.

Quotes About Dewdrops

"When I am dead, my dearest,Sing no sad songs for me;Plant thou no roses at my head,Nor shady cypress tree:Be the green grass above meWith showers and dewdrops wet:And if thou wilt, remember,And if thou wilt, forget.I shall not see the shadows,I shall not feel the rain;I shall not hear the nightingaleSing on as if in pain:And dreaming through the twilightThat doth not rise nor set,Haply I may remember,And haply I may forget." - Author: Christina Rossetti

"Annabeth," he said hesitantly, "in New Rome, demigods can live their whole lives in peace." Her expression turned guarded. "Reyna explained it to me. But, Percy, you belong at Camp Half-Blood. That other life—""I know," Percy said. "But while I was there, I saw so many demigods living without fear: kids going to college, couples getting married and raising families.

I kept thinking about you and me…and maybe someday when this war with the giants is over…"It was hard to tell in the golden light, but he thought Annabeth was blushing.
